in reply to Tricking Our Egos

I really like your idea and will certainly try it! If I can still fool myself by setting my watch fast then your trick is sure to work on me.

One thing that I learned long ago from a venerable old C hacker I worked for was the simple yet for me effective admonition that goes something like: "never stop at one bug" - I can still hear this in my head when I'm debugging (and no, the meds haven't helped ;-)! I have evolved two ideas from this:

This was great advice back when compiling almost anything was at least a "get a coffee" event, if not a "come back after lunch" event, but I think this approach still saves me time even today when most of my stuff compiles in seconds. I often see people find a bug/error, edit the code to fix that one thing, then re-compile/run to get the next bug/error... that gets me cranky!
